Playing Favourites is a running series featuring MIA visitors, staff and volunteers with their favorite objects in our collection.  Playing Favourites is open to every person at MIA, so please let us know if you’d like to participate the next time you visit.

Where are you from?

Nova Scotia

What brings you to MIA? Is this your first visit?

First time here.  This chick I know who I met in Toronto, is from Rankin Inlet and she wanted to show me her culture.

Why is this your favourite piece in the collection?

I can relate to having to do this… not fun
